Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Illegible sign at the City of Hallandale Beach's South Beach park -just the tip of the iceberg of the abysmally poor conditions and maintenance of the public beach by DPW, the place that ought to be the city's Crown Jewel -but isn't!


The location: Hallandale Beach, FL, specifically, the dunes at South Beach, right across from the Chickee Hut closest to The Beach Club.

What does the plant sign say behind all these branches of protected plants, which, though you can't tell here, are about 6-10 feet tall?
Is it something in Latin about the lousy upkeep of the public beaches in general by the city's DPW, or something about the fact that the people behind it are also the same geniuses who intentionally place garbage containers on the public beach -the windiest place in the city-that  don't have lids?

Perhaps having the plant identification signs physically located somewhere where they can actually be read by taxpayers and visitors would be a good start.
But that's just me -I'm a big ideas guy.
